Great work and always a great style that really translates well in 3D. Here's a USA today artist rendition structural rebuild from the mummified remains. A bit more academic, but still cool.

Wow! Thank you all for your kind comments and critics.
I'm thinking a lot about everything you have mentioned.
Especially the 'dry skin' and 'bump' part.

Oh dear, sorry for that. I assumed, that there would be someone else. But, did you count how many 'Hulks' were made? So this could be your chance... There is plenty to improve and to do better! Yes, you can...! And you have Egypt before your doorsteps, or not?

Yeah, there is even a documentary about that. I've seen it. But there is no offical mummy of Nefertiti, yet. They 'assume' the corpse and skull they used is that of Nefertiti. I'm not an expert, but the skull, especially the forehead in side view, doesn't seem to match. But what do I know...

so, back to hiding and lurking... (I read everything)

Do you know at all what the name of the documentary was or what network it was on? I'd definitely want to see if it's available on DVD. Oh yeah, what example/sample did you think didn't match or what were you comparing it to to match it?

There was this "documentary" from a few years ago. Nefertiti Resurrected Very poor science, but good for a laugh if you can catch it on TV.

Here it is... (the bust you see is a replica)
http://dsc.discovery.com/convergenc.../nefertiti.html


here (man, do I love the internet)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6a0...feature=related


and I found this, which I haven't seen yet...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaqyjZKMX70


In the discovery-channel-docu you can see a side view of an x-ray image of the 'assumed' skull. The shape doesn't seem to match all the effigies and reliefs there are. (angle between forehead and nose, for example.) Just a feeling...

Great image Sven. FYI, next time you're taking reference photos, you can eliminate much of the perspective distortion by standing far away from the subject, then zooming in as much as possible with the lens. This with effectively flatten the perspective out for the most part.

Thank you Dustin. Yes, I know. (I have a decent camera). I didn't have my long lens with me, and I had to rush through the museum, and there were many people in the way... But even photos shot with a very long lens, aren't orthographic views. And this difference is more, than I thought. Plus the pinch/barrel distortion, which the viewport doesn't show.

I mentioned it because many people did probably saw only a photo of the original bust (perspectivly distorted). So you have to check, if your model is comparable to such a photo. So, that it can be recognized instantly.

I think the skin is a bit off. Considering that she's a queen who probably have never been in direct sunlight, there's too much wrinkles in her face.
